UPMC Mercy School of Nursing... help?

  1. 0


    Hello! I was accepted into the class of 2014, with the school year starting in August of 2012! (yay!) I have so many questions, but my main one is:

    What courses should I take this summer, to get them out of the way before the 21-month program? Or should I not need to take them early?

    Please and thank you!

    I would take A&P 1 and 2 (you will have to take both for them to transfer). Micro, psychology, human growth and development. On their website is a list, I can't remember all the others, but i would try to get the sciences out of the way, The other classes are alot easier I think.

    Well first of all congratulations! I am in the class of 2013. I was in your shoes last year! hahaha I would definitely recommend taking summer courses. You will be glad you did. Get your A&P 1 and 2 done at CCAC this summer. I did that and all i had to focus on was the nursing. such a god send! Do you have any of the other pre-reqs out of the way? If you or anyone else in your class have ANY questions at all please feel free to email me at my UPMC email. it's mathewsa2@upmc.edu.

    and again CONGRATULATIONS!
